Melbourne singer/songwriter Henry Wagons has called Bob Dylan “a cheeky bastard”.
Wagons was quoted today in americansongwriter.com in an article featuring artists quoting their thoughts about music legend bob Dylan.
Henry recalled Bob’s recent visit to play at Bluesfest in Byron Bay. It was the first time Henry had ever seen Bob. “I saw him play for the first time just recently at a big festival in Byron Bay, Australia called Bluesfest,” he said. “It coincided with me buying my first ever chili-infused coffee from a Moroccan food tent at the festival. They were the perfect match. Both Bob and the coffee were kinda spicy and bitter, but in the best possible way. He turned off all the screens so no one could see him and he played all of his songs quite differently to what many were expecting. I thought it was a proud and bold artistic statement and I loved every minute. He’s a cheeky bastard”.
The article also features quotes from Pegi Young, Ben Kweller and Dave Stewart.
